Saturday was “recessed lighting day” at the Haupert household! 🙂
After getting recessed lighting (and new counters) in our kitchen, Mal and I talked about getting recessed lightening throughout the rest of our house for months and month, but never actually did it. Our friend Matty is an (awesome) electrician and has wired practically half of the South Shore, so we finally got our acts together and hired him for the job.
Mal stayed and helped out Matty, so Quinn and I headed out to run some errands. First, we hit up the YMCA. I did a quick treadmill workout and then we swung by Whole Foods at Derby Street for a few groceries. Quinn was PUMPED to score the tractor cart. They’re hard to come by!
Then, it was off to Quinn’s final soccer practice of the season.
In 6 weeks, he came leaps and bounds from his first practice where we asked us if he could leave and play video games after about 5 minutes to having THE BEST time! He was really into all of the different drills and activities!
I shared a photo on Instagram Stories of the Brooks Bedlam that I was wearing and received approximately 1 million questions about them, so I wanted to share the details here too. They really are the cutest sneakers and great for running too! 😉
Back at home, our recessed lighting project was just about finished. Matty added recessed lighting to Quinn’s bedroom (below), my office (also pictured below), master bedroom, and guest room. He did a great job and, my gosh, he was efficient. It only took him about 4 hours – start to finish!
Now that we have all of this awesome lighting in our house, I have no idea what we’re going to do with all of our lamps!? We really don’t need them anymore. Lamp yard sale?
The rest of the evening was pretty low-key. After putting Quinn to bed, Mal and I watched Bohemian Rhapsody, which was REALLY good, and I ate about a zillion “Baked Cheese Crunchies” from Trader Joe’s. I swear, they’re tastier than regular Cheetos and super addictive!
Question of the Day
What’s on your house project To Do List?
We’re hoping to replace our sink, vanity, and mirror in our downstairs bathroom this spring/summer.
